tag: tray

as most of you know by now, we recently relocated to colorado.  but probably less of you know, just how much stuff we had to leave behind!  the only furniture we brought was one book shelf, our mattress and a little dresser. that’s it! so for the last four weeks i’ve been a regular at all the local thrift stores and hardware stores. i’ve been re-purposing, repainting and reupholstering furniture like a mad woman.  and.. i’m VERY excited to begin sharing them with you!  i’ll try not to bombard you with before and after pics, but i have quite a few projects which i’ll be sharing with you over the next few weeks, yeah!

before and after: tv table

first up, a few tv tables! as we’re spilling drinks and dropping crumbs, i couldn’t help but suddenly realized that we needed some of our own.  we often eat piled up on the couch, and never have anywhere to put our dinner, the computer or our coffee.  problem solved! (yes, i forgot to take the ‘true’ before pic, so this is after i’ve primed, boo!).

remember my back porch makeover? today i’m going to share with you one of my thrifty diy projects that gave the space the right kind of feel- a thrifted frame tray!

frame tray before

i bought this lovely from goodwill for a buck.  beautiful, isn’t it?

frame tray after

i painted the frame with high gloss white spray paint and then covered the cardboard insert with this red print fabric (from ikea). i secured it with a little hot glue and voila! i had a matching tray centerpiece within about twenty minutes!
